Ram is showing off many of its 2017 model year upgrades at the State Fair of Texas.

The 2017 Ram 1500 Lone Star Silver Edition debuts at the state fair there as a stylish truck exclusively for Texan pickup buyers. The brand is also using the event to publicly show other model upgrades to a receptive crowd.

The Ram 1500 Lone Star trim is already exclusive to Texas and accounts to over 50 percent of the model’s sales there. For the new Silver Edition, Ram adds chrome parts for the grille surround and mesh insert, and there’s a milled-aluminum badge in the center. Matching chrome parts add bling to the belt moldings, side mirrors, 20-inch wheels, and front tow hooks. Inside customers can choose between bucket seats either in a combination of Canyon Brown and Light Frost Beige or Black and Diesel Gray. The package goes on sale in the fourth quarter of 2016 as a $900 option.

Some of Ram’s other pickups also have small updates and options for the new model year. For example, the Ram 1500, 2500, and 3500 in the Limited trim are available with a black “RAM” logo across the tailgate for $195.

The Longhorn trim gets a several new standard features too. Aesthetically they benefit from a chrome grille and matching belt trim. The 1500 Longhorn also now comes with Keyless Go, SmartBeam headlights, and rain-sensing wipers.

Heavy-duty truck customers also have new features to look forward to. The 2017 Ram 2500 and 3500 in the Laramie, Longhorn, and Limited trims now comes standard with the 6.4-liter V8. The Longhorn and Limited versions also get upgraded Bilstein shocks, too, and they are optional on all trims of the 2500 as part of a new 4x4 Off-Road package that also includes a limited-slip differential, transfer case skid plate, and fender flares.

The previously revealed Ram 1500 Night Package is also on display at the State Fair of Texas. These trucks feature a dark trim package that looks especially good as a contrast against bright exterior colors.
